Faith Guitars | HiGloss Series VENUS | All Solid Acoustic | Fishman | Hard Case | FVHG
Faith HiGloss acoustic guitars are made to look as stunning as they sound.
With a bright and balanced tone, built in Fishman electronics and an eye-catching hi-gloss finish, the HiGloss series is as comfortable on stage as it is at home.
Faith have gone with the tried and true rosewood-spruce tonewood combination. The solid rosewood back and sides bring the guitar its characteristic brightness and clarity whilst the Engelmann spruce top adds a consistent and crisp response to the tone. This guitar also features a Macassan Ebony fingerboard for a smooth playing experience.
These guitars feature a hi-gloss finish that protects and brings out the natural beauty of the tonewoods and will look great at home or under the bright lights of the stage.
The HiGloss series of guitars are ready to play right of the box as they are fitted with a Fishman INK3 preamp and an under saddle pickup. This 100% hum free system reduces that annoying harsh high end you get on so many acoustic guitars so you can get that pro-grade studio tone you love, live. This guitar easily outperforms pretty much everything else in its price point when it comes to the electronics.
The Venus is one of Faith's most popular guitar shapes, helping propel them to the company they are today. The Venus is a mid-sized, OM/Auditorium-style acoustic which is a comfortable shape that offers excellent balance and versatility. Whether you like to strum or fingerpick, this guitar will be right there with you.
Voted The UK's Best Acoustic Guitar 2012
The Venus is the now iconic shape that brought Faith Guitars to the consciousness of so many players over the years. The combination of a 15" lower bout and a slimmer depth of body looks to classic OM or Auditorium body-shapes for inspiration, and makes the Venus the perfect compromise.
It is still big enough to deliver a big acoustic performance, yet remains small enough for the player to jump around on stage with no problem.
Faith HiGloss series are designed to offer both visual and aural beauty. Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured Rosewood for the back and sides, HiGloss models feature solid Flamed Maple binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.
Tonally, this combination of wood is generally bright and 'zingy', delivering great clarity. Visualising this as a frequency curve, it would be shaped like a smile: high on the bass, dipping down through the middle and rising once again at the top end, lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.
